The Grad Factor Bus Tour Outcome!

London, UK

Well, what a week that was! Following the announcement of a collaborative partnership between GradFactor Enterprises, IncuBus and Journolink, five London based Universities saw a very special type of double decker bus appear on campus during 16-20 March.

The goal of the week was to identify and recruit enterprising university students for a 12 week intensive business start-up boot camp to be held this summer, mentored by YC, Techstars and Seedcamp Alumni.

We were delighted to meet many a student and it’s fair to say a lot of fun and interesting discussion was had by all that attended and boarded the bus! Having visited King’s College, Queen Mary, SOAS, Kingston and the University of West London, the goal now is conducting the many interviews lined up with students who have confirmed their interest in joining the summer boot camp to be held on the IncuBus at its base in Camden, North London.

If you missed the Bus Tour and would like to apply to join the Summer Boot Camp, you can APPLY HERE. The closing date is 31 May, after which successful student entrepreneurs will be announced in readiness for the start of the programme on 22 June 2015.

Here’s some pics from the week and a little video to give an insight into what went on…
